5 Space-Saving Solutions for Your Kitchen | Top Knobs

Struggling with finding space in the kitchen? No matter how big or small your space may be, balancing storage and organization in the kitchen is a common challenge for everyone. However, finding creative solutions to enhance space and streamline organization doesn’t have to be a daunting task. There are numerous remedies that don’t require a full kitchen remodel. Read on to discover five space-saving solutions, featuring decorative hardware from Top Knobs!

1. Appliance Garage

From coffee machines and ice makers to toasters and blenders, counters can quickly become overcrowded, especially in compact kitchens. Appliance garages offer the perfect solution, maximizing counter space while elevating kitchens with a touch of grace. Simply tuck countertop gadgets behind closed cabinet doors when they’re not in use and easily pull them out when needed. 

2. Cabinet Inserts

Items like garbage cans and paper towel holders are essential in the kitchen; however, they often occupy valuable space and can diminish the overall aesthetic of the room. Cabinet inserts for trash cans, paper towels and other kitchen utilities, set the scene for optimized organization. 

3. Pull-Out Drawers

While deep cabinets provide exceptional storage, their functionality can be inefficient when items placed in the back cannot be easily accessed. By upgrading existing cabinets with pull-out drawers, dry goods become readily available for busy mornings, meal prep and entertaining.

4. Roll-Out Shelves

Say goodbye to junk drawers and hello to roll-out shelves!  These nifty space savers are often tucked behind cabinet drawers, significantly increasing the customized storage capacity within cabinets. Roll-out shelfs are the perfect spot for smaller items that tend to clutter up drawers, preventing the dreaded build-up of unused items.

5. Butler’s Pantry

Butler’s pantries have become a rising trend among homeowners and designers. These ancillary rooms layer kitchens with a profound sense of luxury. For households with larger families or homeowners who often host large gatherings, butler’s pantries offer crucial space for secondary appliances, cleaning supplies, back stock goods and much more.

When tackling storage and organization in the kitchen, it’s all about finding the solution that works best for you. However, cabinet customization doesn’t have to stop there! With over 4,500 styles of decorative hardware to choose from, Top Knobs is sure to have the ideal accents to complement your cabinetry.

Top Knobs’ Top 2024 Kitchen and Cabinetry Trends

Has the start of the new year stirred up the idea of renovating your kitchen or refreshing cabinetry? Keeping up with emerging fads can be challenging, but is essential for curating spaces that are both visually appealing and highly functional. Start planning your next home project with our  guide to 2024’s top kitchen and cabinetry trends!

Cheers to Dedicated Beverage Centers!

From the first cup of coffee in the morning to a relaxing happy hour cocktail, dedicated beverage centers are taking over modern kitchens. Homeowners are seeking ways to efficiently store, access and prepare an array of drinks such as coffee, lattes, wine, cocktails and more. These beverage centers often include appliances like espresso machines, in-cabinet mini-fridges and ice makers.

Beverage centers are strategically positioned near living rooms and entertainment areas for seamless and convenient hosting. To create cohesion between these ancillary spaces and the kitchen, we recommend decorating with the same cabinetry and decorative hardware. With an extensive array of knobs and pulls in a number of sizes we offer perfect pieces to establish impeccable balance.

Green with Envy

The desire to connect our homes with nature is here to stay in 2024. Expect to see kitchen aesthetics to shy away from neutral, monotone palettes and lean towards softer, Earthy tones, with green leading the way. From shades of sage to emerald, green is the dominant choice for cabinetry this year. For flawless harmony, consider pairing green cabinetry with hardware in our Honey Bronze finish.

Tactile Textures

Many designers and homeowners are veering away from exclusively smooth surfaces and instead are embracing raw finishes and tactile details. By integrating a range of textures like fluted materials and knurled detailing, basic kitchen designs are transforming into dynamic environments. Our latest addition to the Top Knobs family, the Garrison Collection, features six suites of knobs, pulls, appliance pulls and backplates, each piece featuring knurled texture. It’s the perfect choice for those looking to add coarse finishes into their next refresh or remodel.

Contrasting Cabinets

Looking to infuse color into your kitchen but unsure of where to begin? Using cabinets with contrasting tones is a simple way to introduce color into your space without overwhelming the whole room. Straying away from the shade on the main cabinets, designers and homeowners are now selecting a more striking hue for the island cabinets. We recommend also incorporating a variety of knobs and pulls for added visual intrigue.

Out with White, In with Wood!

In 2024, the all-white kitchen trend is undeniably on the decline. Instead, there’s been a shift to wood tones for added warmth and structure. Throughout kitchen designs, we’re seeing a resurgence of wood accents among cabinetry, flooring and architectural detailing. Opting for lighter wood finishes like white oak or natural oak is ideal to ensure your choice remains contemporary and isn’t outdated. We suggest pairing lighter wood cabinetry with hardware in our Flat Black finish.
